Hello world! Today i made a color Recognizer with arduino and the TCS2300 /TCS230 color sensor. It simply reads the values of the Sensor and prints it to the serial monitor, this sensor can be used for a Color sorting machine for example. The code is very small. We are using a library which makes the values pretty accurate. Follow the next link for the Schematic code and parts list.

NOTE: It also detects other colors then RGB. Only i seen yellow is not very accurate.

Step 1: Schematic, Code & Parts List.

Just wire it up like the schematic, See below how to wire it up if you cannot read the schematic.

The text on the schematic is a bit unreadable for some i can imagine.

  • vcc > 5v
  • GND > GND
  • SO > D3
  • S1 > D4
  • S2 > D5
  • S3 > D6
  • OUT > D2

Parts list.

  • Arduino uno.
  • Color sensor TCS2300 / TCS230 (soon for sale on my site)
  • Jumper wire set.

Good luck! The zip fileTCS3200.zip contains the Library and example codes.

<p>I made arduino color sensor.</p>
<p>Can you please make the entire code onto one document so that I may copy and paste it into my own Arduino file? I am having difficulties downloading. Thanks</p>
from where do u buy all the things ? is it cheap or not
<p>Yes most are pretty cheap, you can also buy them on my website arduinosensors.nl, this sensor is not for sale yet i need to order more. But soon i sell these sensors to.</p>
<p>Follow me for more!</p>
